Description

Added by Natalie F

Vibrant colors, hisotry, and phenomenal food

*Puerto Rico’s history is very interesting.  Exploring Old San Juan is fun, informative, and full of culture.  

*There are unlimited options for food in Old San Juan, I recommend trying Mofongo, which is made from a plantain. Find a rooftop bar to take it all in (and maybe have a mojito or two!). 

*Take pictures of the buildings and streets. It’s hard to find colors like this anywhere else in America.  

*Get coffee. There are tons of options for good coffee on this island! 

-----

*When you are ready for some coastal views and more history check out Castillo San Felipe del Morro.

*Or, head to the beach for a swim and sunset

-----

I am sure there are paid tours you can take of Old San Juan, but I think it’s better to just walk around and stop when you see things that interest you.  Take the money you would spend on a tour and put it towards a meal or boat ride to a different island!

Reviews

My wife and I walked around old San Juan and up to one of the old bases on our honeymoon. This was honestly the best place we went on our cruise. Such genuine people and the city is so full of life

Walking the streets really adds some history to the trip. Its interesting seeing the sites that span a few centuries and the buildings are all so colorful

Old San Juan feels like the cultural heart of Puerto Rico. When I picture the Caribbean, I think of these streets.
